I've recently reinstalled my Indesign CS5 but the Selection Tool (black arrow) will no longer allow me to click and move around objects! They are not locked or anything like that as I can select and move them (at a glacial pace) with my keyboard...
iMac OS Sierra (uninstalled High Sierra after major issues)
Here are my thoughts:
As Barb mentioned CS versions are not compatible with latest versions of InDesign. However, we would like to know if resetting preferences worked for you, or the issue still persists.
Thank your for the responses. I tried the prefrences which seemed to work at first. I used InDesign for a while and then used other programs with InD still running in the background. When I went back on to it though I could no longer move objects...
I have been struggling with this problem for a few days and am happy because I just figured it out. I noticed that I was able to click and move objects only if I clicked on the path, not if I clicked anywhere in the middle of the object. I went to Preferences > Selection & Anchor Display and there is a checkbox that says "Object Selection by Path Only." I unchecked that, and voila! Everything works fine again.
